I too would like this feature.
A typical use-case for me would be down-scaled copies of my images.
I usually down-scale images to get a collection of a CD. Unfortunately
KPA can only use output directories from the batch processes, below the
KPA base dir. (See my crash report 13/15.7.) So KPA imports the
downscaled images into the DB. Now I have those photos in the DB twice
with the same filename, but different pathnames and resolutions.
For that situation it would be nice to have a way to tell KPA "ignore
all images below directory x".
